It's a double title-winning season for the Gators in 2023, taking the DI men's golf team title with a 3-1 match-play win over Georgia Tech to go along with Fred Biondi's individual championship earlier this week.

It's the program's fifth team title and first in 22 years. Yuxin Lin took the first point for the Gators over GT's Christo Lamprecht. John DuBois took the second point over Connor Howe. After the Yellow Jackets earned a point back, Biondi defeated Hiroshi Tai to bring the national title back to Gainesville.
